Bonfire Night 11/11/21

What sounds do fireworks make?

Lots of our children saw and heard fireworks over the weekend, so we have focused this week's learning around Bonfire Night. The children have really enjoyed talking about their experiences with their friends. We have created our own bonfire using sticks in the garden and then we have been painting on the flames using long paint brushes. This has been a great activity to develop the children's core muscles. The children have then been taking it in turns to be the firefighters and spraying the flames with water to put the fire out. They have also used a variety of different materials to make transient art fireworks pictures. For our phonics learning the children have been thinking about the different sounds that fireworks make and trying to use different symbols to represent the sounds.
